What are Cookies, Web Beacons, and Similar Technologies
These technologies are small data files that are stored on your computer, tablet, phone, or other device (collectively, a “device”) and allow us to collect information when you access or interact with our websites, services, apps, messaging, and other tools. Despite the fact that these technologies are frequently referred to as “Cookies,” each one has a unique role that is better defined below:
Cookies: These are small text files (typically made up of letters and numbers) placed in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a website or view a message. Cookies allow a website to recognize a particular device or browser. There are several types of cookies:
Session cookies are temporary cookies that allow us to link your actions within a browser session. They expire when you close your browser.
Between browser sessions, persistent cookies are retained on your device, allowing us to remember your preferences or actions across numerous sites.
First-party cookies are ones that are set by a website that the user is visiting at the moment in order to remember your preferences (e.g., while on our site).
Third-party cookies are cookies that are stored in your browser by a website or domain other than the one you are now viewing. A third-party cookie is created when a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website.
Web beacons are small files (sometimes known as “pixels,” “image tags,” or “script tags”) that may be loaded on our sites, applications, and tools that may work in concert with cookies to identify our users and provide anonymized data on their behavior.
Similar technologies include flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software ways for storing information in your browser or device via local shared objects or local storage. These technologies are compatible with all of your browsers, however they may not be fully handled by your browser in some cases, necessitating management through your installed programmes or device. These technologies are not used to store information in order to target advertising to you on or off our sites
